Where can I buy fresh wide flat rice noodles in Vancouver?
I'm looking for a good place to buy wide flat fresh rice noodles (for making pad see ew or chow foon/fun). I've looked in a handful of Asian produce markets, but haven't had any luck so far. I live in Kits, so the closer to there the better, but if it's a matter of going East or to Chinatown that's fine too. Thanks for your help :)
Is shrink-wrapped (ready-to-eat but needs re-heating in boiling water or stir-fried) "fresh" to you ?
HON's sells their rice noodles at their own restaurants (Chinatown, downtown) but also in many Asian green grocers, usually in the back freezer section where dairy is kept.
i believe you can buy the rice noodle un-cut. so you can decide on the width.
imho, the hon's noodle are terrible. too thick and they are made for retail and extra 'shelf life'.
sorry i cant think of the source at the moment.
I'd suggest buying Hon's plain "rice wraps" and cut them to the noodle width you desire.
